Last week, we found you fifteen desserts we loved that made the most of summer berries. This week? It's cherry time. Whether you stir them into a cake batter, pile them in a pie crust, or layer them in brownies, there are any number of ways to celebrate cherry season. Here are some of our favorites.
Tarts and Pies
Cherry-Amaretto Tart: A crust of shortbread crumbs and ground almonds is complemented by a sweet almond liqueur-flavored mascarpone filling—with Amaretto-glazed cherries on top.
Deep Dish Cherry Pie: Two pounds of cherries in a super-flaky butter-shortening double crust make for a timeless dessert classic.
Simple Cherry Pie: This recipe from Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies has only a single crust, so there are even more cherries to love.
Cakes and Clafoutis
Cherry Clafoutis: A custardy French cake that's heavy on the fruit—just as good served cold the next day for breakfast.
Black Cherry and Raspberry Kuchen: A coffee cake-like creation, with cherries and berries that bleed into the cake, streaking it with sweet-tart dark red juices and keeping it nice and moist.
Actually Good Frozen Yogurt with Roasted Cherry Compote: Fresh, simple frozen yogurt gets even better with cherries that are roasted, then brightened with lemon zest and intensified with cherry liqueur and toasted spices.
